7:02 am
>> i think a few people in this studio might be hoping the yankees win tonight and then that will be an incredible showdown. we'll have more on that later. right now lots of reaction coming in to that emotional appearance in the white house briefing room from chief of staff john kelly. raw and red-eyed as he attacked the president's critics and remembered the death of his own son on the battlefield. chief white house correspondent jon karl starts us off. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. white house officials say it was entirely general kelly's idea to speak out on this and he is furious about how the controversy has unfolded. with his emotional appearance in the white house briefing room, chief of staff john kelly himself a gold star father sought to put an end to the controversy sparked by comments made by the president earlier this week. >> there's no perfect way to make that phone call. when i took this job and talked to president trump about how to
7:03 am
do it, my first recommendation was he not do it because it's not the phone call that parents, family members are looking forward to. >> reporter: kelly's son robert was killed in afghanistan in 2010. >> he asked me about previous presidents and i said i can tell you that president obama, who was my commander in chief when i was on active duty did not call my family. that was not a criticism. that was just to simply say i don't believe president obama called. that's not a negative thing. >> reporter: describing his own experience with loss, kelly said he counseled the president on what to say. >> he said to me, what do i say? i said to him, sir, there's nothing you can do to lighten the burden on these families. but let me tell you what i told him and let me tell you what my best friend joe dunford told me because he was my casualty officer.
7:04 am
he said, kel, he was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed. he knew what he was getting into by joining that 1%. that's what the president tried to say to a -- to four families the other day. >> reporter: president trump told the widow of sergeant la david johnson that her husband knew what he was signing up for. kelly said he was echoing the words he was told about his son. >> the enlisted. he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken. that was the message. >> reporter: as for the congresswoman who was with sergeant johnson's widow when she received the call from the president and said it was disrespectful -- >> it stuns me that a member of congress would have listened in on that conversation. absolutely stuns me. and i thought at least that was sacred. >> reporter: and the brother of
7:05 am
staff sergeant dustin wright one of the four soldiers killed in niger says he doesn't want his brother's death to be politicized. >> nothing good is coming out of talking about president trump and a phone call or, you know, what letters have been sent or anything else. and there are legacies that need to be carried on. there are sons and daughters without fathers. there are wives without husbands, and we want to focus on helping them. >> reporter: overnight the president weighed in on this yet again tweeting, quote, the fake news is going crazy with wacky congresswoman wilson who was secretly on a very personal call and gave a total lie on content. by the way, the congresswoman, congresswoman wilson is a close family friend of the johnsons. the reason why she heard the call is she was in the call with sergeant johnson's widow when the president's call came in. george. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much.
7:06 am
we want to bring in our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz who is in tokyo this morning. martha, you've covered general kelly for a long time and know him well. simply extraordinary that he would come to the briefing room and open up about his own personal loss in that way. >> reporter: george, i was very, very surprised by that. general kelly has been so private about his son. his staff and general kelly himself have asked reporters, have asked me in the past not to bring up the death of his son when we have interviewed him so it was very surprising, but it shows you how profoundly he feels about this, how profoundly protective of president trump he is being and, of course, he was in the room with him. george, as you know, i know many gold star families, they all grieve differently. they all grieve privately or publicly but it is all a unique experience that really none of us can understand. >> certainly and, martha, he expressed that real gulf he feels between the 1%, those who serve in the military and the
7:07 am
rest of the country. >> reporter: yeah, you know what struck me that part of him was still talking about that -- as a marine corps general about the sacrifice and service and, you know, george, i've been out here with the troops the last couple of days, and the sailors on a carrier, they do not like any of this politicized. they do not like to talk about things like this, but interestingly enough, when i asked one young pilot, an f-35 pilot whether he feared that war might break out on the korean peninsula, he said, ma'am, that's what we signed up for. george. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. amy. meanwhile, george, there are still unanswered questions about that deadly ambush in niger that took the lives of sergeant la david johnson and three other special forces. the pentagon has now launched an official investigation and our chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with the latest details. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, amy. as you said still no answers this morning as to what happened
7:08 am
in that deadly ambush in a remote african village more than two weeks since it happened. the american soldiers were part of a green beret battalion assigned to train and assist the nye army there. the four who died were overwhelmed by a force of some 50 militants. but the pentagon still cannot provide a full and cogent narrative of how it happened. citing the ongoing investigation which was only launched on thursday. >> we'll investigate this. we'll have conclusions and those conclusions will be presented. i'm not prepared to go further. >> reporter: two key questions remain, one, did the unit have the proper advance intelligence and backup air and ground support in case something went wrong. officials said the unit did not expect to be in combat. >> over the last six months we have conducted 29 partnered patrols in this general area without contact of any kind. >> reporter: a second question, did sergeant la david johnson get left behind when the rest of his unit pulled out?
7:09 am
his body was not recovered for at least 20 hours. >> it took us a little while to do it. we didn't leave him behind and we searched until we found him and we brought him home. >> reporter: u.s. forces have been in niger for the last four years as the threat of this terror group has escalated with its leader last year pledging allegiance to isis. >> there's a reason we have u.s. army soldiers there and not the peace corps, because we carry guns. >> reporter: and now part of the investigation is whether some of the local troops working with the u.s. forces tipped off the militants about their travel plans and their movements which set up that ambush. >> okay, brian ross, thank you. two former presidents also making headlines this morning. both george w. bush and barack obama rebuking president trump without mentioning him by name sounding the alarm on the deep divisions they see in our country right now. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce is at the white house with the story. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. well, for months president obama and bush have avoided weighing in on the day-to-day politics of
7:10 am
the trump administration but now delivering a one-two punch and while neither of the former presidents mentioned the current president directly, they didn't have to. president obama stepping back into the political spotlight and back into the fray. >> our politics just seem so divided and so angry and so nasty. >> reporter: at a campaign event overnight in virginia the former president never uttered the words "donald trump" but his target was clear. >> we've got folks who are deliberately trying to make folks angry. to demonize people who have different ideas. to get the base all riled up because it provides a short-term tactical outlet. >> reporter: also throwing down the gauntlet, george w. bush in a blistering takedown thursday. >> bigotry seems emboldened and politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theorist and outright fabrication. we've seen our discourse
7:11 am
degraded by casualty cruelty. at times it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. >> reporter: adamant on some issues, there is no wiggle room. >> bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the american creed. >> reporter: don't expect to have this become a regular thing. president obama doesn't have anymore campaign appearances scheduled for the rest of the year. president bush isn't expected to weigh in again any time soon. >> reporter: meantime, late last night in the senate they passed that budget which is the first step towards getting that tax cut president trump wants. >> reporter: overnight senate republicans cleared that first major hurdle in their quest to overall the nation's tax code last night passing a budget resolution. this now paves the way for them to pass tax reform with just a majority vote. this budget heads to the house for their approval. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. on to florida where police discovered an arsenal of weapons
7:12 am
in a home where they were investigating an unrelated crime. abc's gio benitez is here with that story and, gio, this could have, may have prevented disaster. >> reporter: it really could. good morning to you. the man is not talking to police but they're already making comparisons to the las vegas shooter, a total unknown who wasn't on anyone's radar. now even the fbi is involved. >> tommy: this morning, a troubling surprise for police in florida who believe they may have thwarted an attack. detectives conducting a separate crimes against children investigation and instead finding a large arsenal of weapons, explosives, ammunition, side by side with maps of two schools and a water treatment plant. >> these are the people that are most concerning to us. what we call the lone wolf, you know, the sleepers out there, the people who are not on our radar. >> reporter: police say the man, 24-year-old randall drake had three explosive devices, ten rifle, eight handguns, more than 15 knives, a baseball bat with nails, even a crossbow. >> he named his guns. that's weird.
7:13 am
i mean, i don't know how else to say it. >> reporter: detectives found notes on how to build bombs and this, a handwritten note saying i shall have my bloody revenge and then the world will burn, burn. drake is charged with unlawful y making destructive devices or attempting to. police don't know what he allegedly planned to do with those maps and the weapons, but the fbi's joint terrorism task force is investigating, boy, this was a scary one. >> thank god he found him. thank you. now to major lawsuits targeting three of the biggest diet soda brands accusing them of misleading marketing and saying that artificial sweeteners they used may cause weight gain. paula faris is here with the story. good morning, paula. >> reporter: good morning, michael. these lawsuits center on the use of aspartame and its controversial nature, citing a
7:14 am
recent report that shows a link between artificial sweeteners and type 2 diabetes and heart disease. this morning diet soda is under fire. coca-cola, pepsi, and dr. pepper, the three largest u.s. makers of carbonated beverages are facing proposed class action lawsuits alleging the marketing of their sodas are false, misleading and deceiving shoppers into thinking the beverages will help them manage or lose weight. >> products marketed as diet products should be helpful in helping people lose weight and these products are not helpful in losing weight. they may, in fact, do the opposite. >> reporter: the suits also claim aspartame, the artificial sweetener used in the sodas is likely to cause weight gain rather than to help in weight loss or healthy weight management. >> there's no question this is deceptive advertising. >> reporter: although the studies don't show conclusively
7:15 am
aspartame directly causes weight gain several do show a correlation between diet soda consumption and obesity, the calorie control council whose members include manufacturers of artificial sweeteners like aspartame and diet sodas say reduced-calorie products are an important tool in helping consumers improve their diet and lose weight. the lawsuit is very interesting. aren't seeking any specific dollar amount but want the jury and for these beverages to stop being marketed as diet. the american beverage association which reps the three soda companies however, michael, called these lawsuits meritless. >> thank you, paula. we'll be joined by dr. jennifer ashton and, doc, you're board certified in obesity medicine. what is the science behind this claim? do they have a case? >> obesity is a complex disorder. multiple factors go into it, genetics, behavior, what are you drinking, eating, some medications and environment. while drinking a zero calorie beverage has some benefits there
7:16 am
is no clear scientific data that something like aspartame directly leads to weight loss. >> now, regardless if they are healthy or not, they are sugar-free. >> right. >> do the pros outweigh the cons here? >> that's a complex question, right? there is extensive data linking them to obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes. you have to weigh the risks versus the benefits versus alternatives and when you talk about them, you need to remember our bodies are 60% water. not 60% sweetened beverage. >> good point. got to watch what you put into your body. >> drink water. >> that was the story behind the story. >> as i said, you don't order the large fries and the large -- the big mac, large fries and a diet soda. doesn't work that way. >> exactly. >> thank you, doctor. >> you bet. >> thank you, jen. we move to a frightening scene in north carolina caught on camera when a school bus catches on fire. the driver, look at this, pulled over after he smelled smoke. that's when flames erupted. more than a dozen students had to evacuate from the east charlotte area high school.
7:17 am
one was treated for smoke inhalation, the children were pick you had up by a different bus and taken home. no word on what caused this in the first place but certainly glad everyone is okay. >> thank goodness for that. now to that big win overnight for the los angeles dodgers heading to the world series for the first time since 1988. they crushed the cubs, 11-1 and enrique hernandez hit three home runs including that grand slam with seven rbis. especially sweet win for him because his dad who just beat cancer was in the stands. back in l.a. people celebrated by waving flags across the city and see the buildings downtown lit up in dodgers blue. >> three home runs in one game. >> that's quite a night. >> one heck of a night. >> and grand slam. >> we all need a night like that. rob has the landslide forcing an evacuation in washington state. what's going on? >> good morning, michael. this happened yesterday morning north of seattle. you see the trees crashed into
